After her last encounter, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a maximum security prison. When a series of strange and deadly events occur shortly after her arrival, Ripley realizes that she has brought along an unwelcome visitor.
Charles S. Dutton,
200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone. Along with a crew of space pirates, she must again battle the deadly aliens and stop them from reaching Earth.
After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.
Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
Almost eleven years after the disastrous expedition to the distant moon LV-223, the deep-space colonisation vessel Covenant, with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation, is on course for the remote planet Origae-6 with the intention to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission entices the crew to a nearby habitable planet which resembles Earth. The unsuspecting crewmembers of the Covenant will have to cope with biological foes beyond human comprehension. Ultimately, what was intended as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation in uncharted space.Written by

Chinese version was heavily edited to get an approval from film censor's office. Beside violent scenes, almost any scene with an Alien was cut/shortened so you can barely see the creatures. The kiss between David and Walter was removed as well. See more »

I really don't understand why people complain about this movie. "Where's the plot?! Where's originality!" People complain that the movie has no climate of the older "Alien". But what does it mean? Let's be honest. Every Alien movie repeat the same story: bunch of people (idiots mostly) need to fight xenomorph, they're dying and that is all, no deeper meaning. They were just action movie (Finch's part was quite different, but point of killing Alien was the same). Ridley Scott presents new story between "Prometheus" and first "Alien" and he's doing really good job! Movie is dark, brutal and beautiful, there is no accidental shots (Dariusz Wolski). Yeah, we've seen many thing before, but in "Covenant" they are breathtaking. I enjoyed the movie and enjoyed how story from "Prometheus" was pushed. I hope that unfair reviews wont stop Mr. Scott from doing another "Alien" movie.
